Sure. Grab these all the files in this directory:


Then do

  $ gcc pine64_image.c -o pine64_image
  $ cat bl31.bin <u-boot-dir>/u-boot.bin > bl31uboot.bin
  $ ./pine64_image scp.bin bl31uboot.bin u-boot.img
  $ dd if=boot0.bin of=/dev/mmcblk0 seek=16
  $ dd if=u-boot.img of=/dev/mmcblk0 seek=80

That should give you a working system. The scp.bin and boot0.bin are
from the Allwinner binary distribution. ATF (bl31.bin) is built from
these sources:
